Note of appreciation: City club thankful for help with event

Posted on November 23, 2015 |
By Jeff Fritz



In this season of gratitude, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes and the Vergennes Partnership want to express their thanks to the many organizations and individuals who contributed so much to this year’s Pumpkins in the Park event.

Five churches, eight restaurants, two service organizations, two city departments and five members of the accordion-playing Vorsteveld family all lent a hand, showing once again that the spirit of cooperation is alive and well in the greater Vergennes community.

In Book VII of the Republic there is a portrayal of this ascent that repeats much of what I wrote about in the previous essay. It is worth retelling.
